drank Mi Xian Black by Butiki Teas
757 tasting notes

Another sipdown! This tea made me late for class the other day because I refused to go out the door until I had finished all of this scalding wonder.

This tea possesses the most delightful juicy sweetness, and I want to drink it every day. I will definitely be picking up a huge stock of this in spite of the crazy costs and the increase in shipping. When I started exploring teas I never thought a unflavoured black would be on my top favourite teas list of all time, yet here I am.

I recommend also trying Stacy’s premium Taiwanese Assam :)

CrowKettle

I will be picking up some of that too when I get the chance! :)

Sil

I have a small sample of the upgraded premium that i’m planning on trying this weekend to do a comparision with the normal premium taiwanese assam. I’ll keep you posted :)

CrowKettle

I’ll be looking out for that! Ashamedly, I still haven’t tried assam.

Sil

I’m a little swamped at the moment but i’m open to doing a swap in march if you still haven’t tried the assam by then heh

CrowKettle

Thanks for the offer! If we do a swap I’ll remember to keep out green oolong. I want to finish up a huge portion of my cupboard before I acquire any more teas but I have this huge shopping list for Butiki that I want to act upon sooner than later! Hopefully my cupboards aren’t too sparse around March. :)

Bio

I started my Steepster loose leaf adventure back in 2012. I can’t say I’m completely new anymore, but I still view oolong as a magical, extraterrestrial creature that unfurls in water.

White teas, roasted/fired green teas, and the not so roasted green oolong varieties are my favourites.

Currently looking for the most buttery and sweet green oolong I can find.

Ingredients/flavours I enjoy (in moderation): anise, butter, caramel, cedar, cream, floral, grapefruit, jasmine, lavender, lemon, lime, maple, marshmallow leaves, melon, mint, orchid, pine, rice, rose, vanilla.

Ingredients/flavours I tend to dislike: apple, cocoa nibs, licorice, marine, peach, stevia

Subjective Rating System 2.0:

91-100: My absolute favourite tea. Will impulsively buy and hoard like a dragon.

86-90: A favourite tea. May have quality flaws that I choose to ignore.

76-85: A lovely tea, maybe of high quality or masterful blending, but not one I’m likely to order again.

70-75: Enjoyable, but I may have few minor problems with quality, consistency, ingredient chemistry and/or personal preferences.

50-69: Quality, consistency, blending, or personal preference problems are apparent, but I wouldn’t pass up a cup.

11-49: Varying levels of undrinkable tea. I don’t give a lot of these ratings out, since I tend to grab teas I know will appeal to me.

1-10: Nightmare tea from the chaos realms. This is last year’s low-grade bancha mixed with rancid coconut, stale cocoa nibs, over-enthusiastic hibiscus, and combined with stevia sweetener. I’m pretty sure it doesn’t exist.
